Daily attack counter

What is this?

In 70-80% of network breaches exposed RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) systems are the initial entry point. If you have RDP exposed to the Internet, you are considerably increasing your risk of having a network breach.

This map shows the last 60 minutes of brute force login attempts against a live system with RDP open, hosted in Sydney, Australia.

There is nothing valuable on this system. It contains no data, its only purpose is to provide logs to generate this attack map. And yet, as disposable as it is, it receives thousands of brute force attacks a day. Don't think you won't be targeted.

This site was made to offer a visual and non-technical representation of the reality of having RDP exposed to the Internet. For guidance on securing Remote Desktop Services, see this article from Microsoft.
